Hello again Dear Humans! Ma Leueen, my human, came home today. She’s been gone for what seems like a long time. She insists it was not a long time but it seemed like it to me. I had quite a good time while she was gone but I always like to have her back. So what did I do while she was gone?
Coach Belinda rode me and I worked very hard. I really want to get it right for her you know. That’s important. She told me she was very happy with my work and so I’m happy and relieved about that. Also Assistant Lynsey rode me too. That was fun! We went up the hill at the back and onto the big grass field and then cantered around the loop that goes through the forest. We were really motoring. I’m talking a fast canter. Oh yah! And we would canter round the forest loop and then up the hill onto the grass field and then we would really GO! Right across the field and up a narrow forest trail and over a fallen jog. Yes! I jumped it! I did! I jumped it cantering up the hill and also down the hill. Hey! That was so much fun. Today Ma Leueen told me that Lynsey said I would make a great Eventer horse! Woo Hoo!
I also went for a long and I mean loooong hack in the forest with barn manager Carl and Assistant Erin. Erin rode me and it was great fun. I showed Erin what a wonderful trot I have and canter as well. Ma Leueen told me she loved riding me.
So while Ma Leueen was away I was a Star and I had a lot of fun.
Ma Leueen told me she had gone to a place far away called London and that the weather was really nice and sunny. Well, we sure didn’t get any of that here. I am getting pretty tired of this.
The only thing I like about it being wet is I can go out in the morning and have a nice roll in the wet sandy mud. I get my back nicely rubbed and it feels good!
Ma Leueen went on to tell me all about some big parade thing she had gone to see with a whole bunch of black horses with fancy bridles and saddles and riders in colorful outfits. They are called the Cavalry. Military I think. I wasn’t really all that interested. I just a gave it a “one ear” listen as you can see in this photo.
So I listened with one ear and thought about other stuff with the other ear. I like to be polite. I don’t want to meddle or mix in but….. you know.
Anyway, now Ma Leueen is back we have to get ready for our next show. That’s coming up soon. I hope she will be focused and ready to work hard in our lessons. I’ll have to keep an eye on her and make sure she is getting it right. Until next time Dear Humans good wishes to you all.
